Unlocking the Secret for Reducing Costs on Kubernetes

Transitioning to Kubernetes

A versatile open-source platform, Kubernetes can do more than help you grow your business — it can also save you money. By hosting your applications exclusively on Kubernetes, as opposed to relying on multiple servers, you can streamline your entire system — reducing your costs by as much as 30%.


Understanding  Pods, Nodes, and Pod Density

 The smallest, most basic unit of any Kubernetes application, Pods are a group of one or more containers sharing the same network. As containers within the same pod share a common IP address, they can easily share information with one another.


Nodes host the pods and nodes are either a virtual machine (VM) or a tangible one–the more pods assigned to one node, the less spent on additional servers.


 Kubernetes allows for High Pod Density — the ability to run overprovisioned and densely packed nodes.
